    Very chocolatey. We cut cherries in half and placed on top before baking. Make sure the cookies are refrigerated at least 6 hours to ensure uniform consistancy of the dough.

    Very good cookie, lowfat too. I added 12 oz. of semisweet miniature chocolate chips for even more chocolatey goodness!

    These cookies are great. My kids said they taste like mini lava cakes. They are very easy to make. Just refrigerate as suggested. I used a melon baller to scoop out the cookies, and they are awesome!

    This is one of my least favorite recipes to make because I hate rolling the dough in the powdered sugar. It gets really sticky and messy. But, I've made these multiple times and will continue to do so because they are DELICIOUS! Great idea to bring to any kind of pot luck! :)
